my new wheels

Good morning.
Well, our wet cold weekend is over. But not the wet and cold. It is again a drizzly, cold morning. Currently 54 with a high expected of only 63. It looks to be wet and cold the rest of the week. At least I'll be busy working. I'm almost completely booked this week. Just a few openings left.
The rain let up and it dried out enough for us to mow the lawn and I did a little yard work. We also got delivered the new snow tires for the Kia.
If you remember this post, my Kia got beat up last winter. Slid right into a light post. But anyway, with the automakers trying to get every mpg out of their cars, they use tires that have less resistance on the roads, that also means less traction, especially in snow. So Craig went online and found these 'snow' tires. Especially treadled for winter driving. He did that a few years ago for the Cruiser. It makes a huge difference!
He got them online from a company called Tire Rack. They were cheaper even with shipping than from Discount tire or other local dealers.
And then, for dinner, Craig made some tasty latkes to go with my grilled chicken and zucchini.

Ummmm, yummy!
And now, it's time to get ready for another work week......

    We've been buying from Tire Rack for many year's now. They have excellent prices.
